"I've reached out to the chancellor," said Weingarten, who heads the 1.4 million-member parent organization that includes the WTU.

I'm so very disappointed in Rhee and her tactics. I truly believe that children are not first. I believe her ramshod practices are divisive, destablizing and horrible. She frightens me. Scares me to death and not in a motivating way either.
As a DCPS parent, morale is soooooo very low.
Is this how you build a school system? Toss 'em all? Then who loses? My child and others.Disparing schools all over the country so that my child's academic excellence is viewed as nothing b/c it's DCPS.
I have the resources and looking at independent schools b/c Rhee is very scary; like the Sheriff in the Wild Wild West w/o regard for the people and no justice for all.

Meant to write disparaging.
